Webb/Kralik lookalike?
« on: November 08, 2012, 01:58:10 PM »
Saw this the other day,it may be the reason for mis-attribution (possibly ::)) in some books,eg 'The Hallmarks of Antique Glass by R.Wilkinson,page 137 re-Kralik vase,the reg'lozenge checks out as the dealer says,not seen one like this before,

HI Keith
not sure what you mean about misattribution - I don't have that book.  Does it say in that book that this vase is Kralik?

I'm sure he won't mind a little good publicity - Duncan Robinson.  :)
